The introduction of the new GDPR legislation gives clients more control over what data is collected about them and how long that data is stored. With this legislation comes the ability for a customer/client to request the removal of their data. Although the legislation applies only to European nationals, we have opened up this system to all users as we feel that your privacy and trust in us is paramount.
If you wish to have your data removed as part of the GDPR “right to be forgotten” you are able to request this, if the following criteria apply to you;
- You have no currently active services with us
- You must not have made any payments to us within the last 7 years
- You are the original account owner
We can remove any support ticket data and email history as part of “right to be forgotten” if you have made purchased anything from us within the last 7 years.
If you meet all of these criteria or are confused, then simply click here to contact us in regards to requesting your data to be removed;
We will provide an answer to this request within 2 weeks, from here we may ask you for proof of identity as well as a few security questions. After this you will be provided with a final confirmation page, that you must agree to before the data can be deleted.
If your request is successful you will not receive a response to your original request, but a final automated email confirming that your personal information was been purged from our databases.
